Coaching is really a big fraternity. You can get in if you know the right people.

The big thing for me is just continuing to be a beacon of hope. And showing people that nothing is impossible.
I work out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; take Thursday off; then I work out Friday and Saturday. So sometimes I’ll eat whatever I want on Thursday, like a big breakfast of pancakes and bacon and eggs and stuff.

I’ve never seen anywhere in the world as beautiful as Kashmir.

And it’s true, the people are very beautiful too.
If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

I’m a big fan of my father.

I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot… when you think about the consequences you always think of a negative result.

To many people, ‘biodiversity‘ is almost synonymous with the word ‘nature,’ and ‘nature’ brings to mind steamy forests and the big creatures that dwell there. Fair enough.

Elections should be held on April 16th- the day after we pay our income taxes. That is one of the few things that might discourage politicians from being big spenders.

To be honest, busking was a massive part of becoming aware of homelessness. I used to run into a lot of ‘Big Issue’ sellers and a lot of people on the street. It really opened my eyes to the kind of life that they live and the options that are open for them – or not, actually.
I want to be that Latin girl doing big things around the world.
I was never the smartest guy in the room. From the first person I hired, I was never the smartest guy in the room. And that’s a big deal. And if you’re going to be a leader – if you’re a leader and you’re the smartest guy in the world – in the room, you’ve got real problems.

I believe in believing. My coach John Kavanagh is a big atheist, and he is always trying to persuade people to his way of thinking, and I think, ‘What a waste of energy.’ If people want to believe in this god or that god, that’s fine by me; believe away. But I think we can be our own gods. I believe in myself.
Being Mormon is a big part of who I am, and I try very hard to live the right way, but I don’t know that I’m an example. I hate to say, ‘Yes, look at me. I’m a good example of being Mormon.’ I want to be the best person I can be, so in that aspect, maybe I’m a good example.
Supplements have always been a really big part of my training regimen.
Everybody said you’re never going to win this whole Classic. You’re not strong enough. You’re big, you’re athletic, you’re fast – but you will never win this Arnold Classic. Those were the people who didn’t believe in me… I put in the work every single day – and here I am, three times champ!

Forgetting the importance of national landscapes, cultures, national behaviours, reactions, and reflexes is a big, big mistake.

The discovery of agriculture was the first big step toward a civilized life.
